3 cheers for Denis

Good evening lovelies

I am snuggled warmly on the couch catching up on the 40 or so hours of tv we have saved on our PVR. It's been a very long, very rough day.

I headed into work early this morning to beat the traffic because of Obamamania and because I had planned to meet Janet for an early movie.

The roads were slippery. Very slippery. As I pulled into the parking lot at work and went to turn the corner, I totally lost control, slid into the back of a car and that car went sliding into the car beside it. BAM. Too much crunching for my liking.

The good news: nobody was hurt. That's the very very good news. The other good news was although the car went sliding right into the SUV beside it the SUV only ended up with the tiniest of scratches. PHEW. The other good news was that both of the people I hit were very nice and had a "these things happen" attitude. You never know how people are going to react. Fortunately I was going very slowly - it could have been much worse.

The bad news: both my Jeep and the car I hit have at least a few thousand dollars in dammage. Fortunately I have a very clean record so we just have to pay our deductible and it doesn't affect our insurance prices. Thank goodness.

I have to say the whole thing left me quite shaken. I just felt "off" all day. I was terrified for the drive home but it was just fine...thankfully.

We had a super fast supper and Denis hit the road for his poker game. He's found a great group of guys to play poker with every once in a while and I think it's fantastic!

He definitely deserves a night out. He's been working hard - so hard in fact that we got some fantastic news this week...he got a promotion! He's now a team lead. His team members will now be reporting to him along with a few other DBAs. It's so very exciting because he's been working very hard the past few years and have finally been getting recognized for it!

We are off to have dinner at my cousin Steve's new restaurant PLAY tomorrow night to celebrate. Mom Turpin is going to join us too.

I think the weekend is going to be pretty low-key. We have lots of odds and ends to do and I need to get ready for my weekend away next week!

Well lovelies
That's it for me.
I think I need a shower and some sleep...
